ROSEAU

In August 1978, Deputy Richard Magnuson had been at the Roseau (Minnesota) County Sheriff’s Office for about 2 ½ months. On Aug. 2, 1978, his life was cut short at the age of 20 when he was the final victim of a series of killings by Gregory McMaster.
Allan Hetteen died in a November 1973 farm accident, but in July, his son, Mike, of Roseau, was able to relive a bit of Polaris history when he visited the glacier site where his dad, David Pearson and Harold Johnson had tested those Comet snowmobiles 58 years earlier.
Thursday morning, on the last day of school for students in Roseau, a deer crashed through the window of the nurse’s office before scrambling out the office door, down the hallway and through the north door of the elementary school back into the wild.
After 10 years in the Minnesota House of Representatives, Dan Fabian says he wasn’t planning to run for mayor when he decided to leave the Legislature and return to Roseau. About that same time, longtime Roseau Mayor Jeff Pelowski had announced he wouldn’t seek another term after 22 years in the office. In Pelowski’s mind, Fabian seemed like the ideal mayoral candidate.
